Galaxy S8 Could Shoot Video at an Astounding 1000 Frames Per Second
Remember the Xperia XZ Premium? The smartphone that can record slow-motion video at 960 frames per second? Well, it turns out that the Galaxy S8 will have a similar feature, but the difference here is that the upcoming flagship will be able to record footage at a slightly higher frame rate compared to the Xperia XZ Premium.
Galaxy S8 Will Be Able to Achieve Slow-Motion Video Recording at Higher Frame Rates Thanks to Adding DRAM in the Camera Sensor, According to One Report
If a new report is to be taken seriously, then it looks like Naver claims that thanks to the addition of DRAM into the camera sensor, it will grant the Galaxy S8’s rear camera super powers when you want to capture slow-motion video at extremely high frame rates. The resolution at which these slow-motion videos will be able to get captured have not been detailed, but we are under the assumption that just like the Xperia XZ Premium, it will be able to capture such footage at 720p.
Another detail missing from the report is the number of megapixels the rear camera will be able to capture per image. While the number of megapixels is getting less and less important in the world of smartphone photography, it still details the resolution at which the image can be captured at. Previous rumors have suggested that the megapixel count will remain at 12MP, but the sensor will be thoroughly improved. The advantage of this approach is that the lower the megapixel count, the larger the size will be of the individual pixels.
With this change, more light will be able to enter the sensor, and if the aperture is maintained at f/1.7 just like on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, then it will be advantageous for the user as low-light images and video can be captured with more detail and less noise. The camera of the Galaxy S7 was already impressive so we are extremely excited at what this flagship will be capable of doing.
Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are going to be announced on March 29 and shortly after their announcement, the pre-order session will start. Which device will you be upgrading to in the near future? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
